    Re: Bad Link (WIn ME)

    Here is the one that I got from MS in the email from the Tech Center
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/...in/MS02-023.asp

    The link in the email is different but it took me to the above address.
    Hope this helps.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Re: Bad Link (WIn ME)

    Hi Dave,

    Thanks for the response. I was able to shorten the URL and navigate to the download page and retrieve the patch for IE 5.5 SP2; however, i'm not sure it installed. When I opened the .exe file it extracted and started hitting the modem but no message appeared to say it was installed. Is there some way I can check to see if it installed? I checked About IE in Help and it doesn't show the QS321232 patch number.

    Thanks again for the help.

    I have IE 6.0 and they are listed.

    When I installed it it had a pop up stating that it was installed. I did a direct install instead of a download and then install.

    If the patch was successful, then the number should appear. I think you can either get the patch from the Windows Update site or download it and install it locally. If one method did not work, try the other.

    Re: Bad Link (WIn ME)

    Thanks for the response. I'm still not getting there. I noticed that you have a couple of updates that I have not installed; however, the way I read the MS site, the Q321232 is a cumulative patch that should incorporate those I'm missing. Is there any reason I shouldn't install IE6.0?

    Yes, as best I can tell all of the previous updates should be rolled into Q321232. I have argued in the past that MS should just eliminate the other numbers after you have installed a cumulative patches, -- since there is no benefit to having the old ones displayed. In therory, there is going to be an SP-1 or SR-1 for IE6 released soon that should incorporate this patch and even some more updates.

    If you can't get it to update, then an overlay re-installation of IE6 might help. Alternatively, you might try to "Repair" IE6 (from Add/Remove Programs) first.
    _________________________________________________

    In case you wondered, IE6 stores that list of updates in your registry here:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentV ersionInternet Settings]
    "MinorVersion"=";Q312461;Q313675;Q316059;q313829;q 319182;Q321232;"

    Additionally, it appears you can see if Microsoft has installed this particular update via "Active Setup" by checking out this registry key:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftActive SetupInstalled Components{D7B44F3E-77D3-44C5-8E03-4222D9A18B7B}]
    @="Q321232"
    "IsInstalled"=dword:00000001
    "Version"="6,0,2716,2300"
    "Locale"="En"
    "ComponentID"="Q321232"

    See that "IsInstalled" value? The DWORD of one (00000001) is saying YES.
    __________________________________________________ ___________________

    Edit: I just realized you are running IE5! Sorry. The Active Setup/Installed Component number may be specific for IE6, but the MinorVersion information should still be the same.

    Personally, I would upgrade to IE6. Most of the problems people were having were due to software incompatibilities.
